I’ve slowed down on blogging over the last few weeks. I was trying to put an entry in every weekday, but I’m afraid that was just a little too ambitious. Brave New Lunch is just over a month old, but I’m starting to think I need to come up with a plan for content if I want this blog to be informative and interesting for readers and fun for me to write.
I started this blog after reading Fed Up with Lunch: The School Lunch Project. I wanted to respond to Mrs. Q’s op-edit posts since I have an insider’s view of things. I’ve written a couple of guest blogs for Mrs. Q (Pizza Perspectives, Ingredients, and Thaw-and-Serve) and will continue to write them every once in a while.
My plan for my blog, at least for the next month, is to try to add new types posts to the blog – short interviews with people involved with school lunch and simple, wholesome recipes.
This Tuesday I will attend a Massachusetts Farm to School “Shoptalk” conference, which will be my starting point for potential interviewees. A few public school food service directors will give presentations about how they successfully implemented local farm produce programs in their school.
I will still be continuing to work on the Behind The Kitchen Door Series, which are blog pieces about the different part of my school kitchen. I plan on writing about our snack service this week.
Please leave a comment if you have any ideas or suggestions for Brave New Lunch!
